Colleges Against Cancer: Case Study

Improved Essays
What do you consider to be your most meaningful contribution to Colleges Against Cancer during the 2015-16 year?

I think I consider my participation in Relay for Life event as the most meaningful contribution that I have made to Colleges Against Cancer during the school year. I was not able to attend Tuesday meetings especially on winter quarter because of a job I had that needed me on Tuesday nights. However, this did not hinder me to constantly communicate to my other committee members. When time permitted this spring, I actively participated during Tuesday meetings, some of the flyering weeks, the production for Relay props, and the event itself. On the production of the props, I helped in making posters and making the cars made up of boxes. On the Relay for Life Event, I received my schedule in my name tag but it was blank.

I would like to give back to the future members. I am an advocate of inclusivity because I do not want to leave other people behind. As an HGR, I am already familiar with programming events to keep members involved. Part of programming is working on a budget and therefore I am already familiar how to be wise in making sure that I get the most out of the money allotted. As mentioned earlier, I always come in with a smile and a positive attitude and this will send a message to committee members that they part and welcome in the club. In programming socials such as dinner on the hill, dinner in Westwood, karaoke nights, weekend hikes, or just fundraisers, ideally could help retain member engagement and maintain interest. If selected, I would like to be very clear about what spirit points are so people would have a good idea to what it is and what they could possibly

    My members as well as my friends became productive and involved community members and soon they were proposing the events the club should do next. I found that helping the community was very gratifying and fulfilling but what I appreciated the most was observing the change in my members and friends. I was able to see my members and friends break out of their shell and comfort zone, they were no longer “scared” or “too” shy to engage in the community, instead they were telling me the types of events they want to…

    My mother always said that things happen for a reason. I believe that the reason I joined Key Club during my freshman year of high school was to lead me to my major, public relations. At the time, I wanted to join the student-led community service organization just to improve my college applications. However, I quickly became engrossed in the organization, building my passion for serving others and eventually becoming club webmaster the following year. I routinely spent weeknights sorting clothes for clothing drives or passing out cans at local food banks, and my weekends were consumed with volunteering at charity 5k races.…

    It actually covered issues that I had never thought about before and I think it’s good that [my] college wants to support people through these issues.’ So should these workshops be mandatory? Absolutely. Realistically, if they are labelled as being optional, then the majority of people are not going to attend. Fresher’s week is a hectic, exhausting week and most people would rather spend those 90 minutes resting or with their new found friends than sitting in a seminar room. More importantly, the people who could benefit most from these sorts of workshops are the people who would be least likely to…

    Coming into this semester I didn’t know a whole lot on the topic of sustainability. I wondered what kinds of things I would learn, and be able to implement into my daily life, and even teach to my friends and family. By far the most interactive and beneficial lesson I could have gotten was my experience from this year’s R3 project. Last year when, I lived in the dorms, I noticed problems with recycling and trash being left all over the place. Moving forward to this year when I moved into my first off campus apartment, those problems were immediately brought to my awareness and I knew some things needed to change.…
